Received word last night that one of my poems had been published on jerseyworks!  I'm very pleased -- I'd been submitting to them for quite some time, so this is a good success for me.

The poem can be found here.

Lacuna Matata!

What a wonderful phrase! -- a flash fiction piece of mine has just been (re)published by the Lacuna Journal!

It can be found here.  :)

Now you'll have to excuse me -- I have some diapers to address...

A wee bit busy... and horror poetry?

Not that I need particular excuses to have horrible, unforgivable delays between blog posts -- I'm simply awful about it -- but this time I actually have one worth sharing:

I'm a father!  Huzzah!

So yeah, that's what's been on my mind (and on my plate, though not literally, because yeech) of late.  In the meantime, and since this is October, I should note that I've had a couple of horror poems published, here and here.  So huzzah for that, too! :)

Woot..? I'll say woot!

Apparently a story I had published last year was selected as an Honorable Mention for possible inclusion in the anthology Best Horror of the Year vol. 4!


But not published in that collection.


It is... one of 608 Honorable Mentions...


But!  The anthology is legit.  The story was selected in its fashion by Ellen Datlow, who says that she'd "read or skimmed...a LOT more" stories than that to whittle it down to just the... er, 608 best.  At the very least, I'll take it as an affirmation that my story isn't God-awful, which -- if you're me -- is important and high praise.

And when I think about it... being in the top 608 in anything, any category, across the US (or however wide this net was cast) for an entire year?  Is actually a pretty remarkable thing, and especially for a novice such as myself.

Also on this list?  Peter S. Beagle.  Elizabeth Bear.  Peter David.  Kelly Link.  Joyce Carol Oates.  Robert Silverberg.  Kate Wilhelm.

Oh, and Stephen King.

So, you know, when an award-winning and eminent editor like Ellen Datlow puts one of my horror stories on the same list as those of folks like Stephen King?

I think it's time to woot.

Fiction (and Poetry) Available!

Yay! :)

With the help of a good friend (and talented fellow writer) I have put up some easy-to-find links to fiction and poetry still available on the web.  A few pieces have been published in other venues but are sadly no longer available...

Hopefully in the near future, I'll have some new things to add to those link lists... :)

Still alive!

Still writing!

For a while, I'd taken to posting reviews of other people's fiction in this space... but now I've deleted that stuff so that I can focus in on what this ought to be about: my own writing.

More to come.
